. >> the carrier eisenhower won the carrier on the nine month deployment given the iraq iran afghanistan situation and the new emphasis on the western pacific theater when do you expect them to get back to a six month deployment? >> well i don't think six months deployments are in the future for i would say the next two or three years at least. the reason is twofold. the requirements for the deployment around the world as we see the global force management allocation plan that we signed up to. secondarily, we need 11 carriers to do the job. that's been pretty clearly written and is underwritten in our defense strategic guidance. we have ten carriers today as the eisenhower returned from her last deployment just a week ago. and she is getting ready to the commission. it will come into being as commission around 2015 on the deployment about a year plus the rate to seven months in a week for the carriers. each of the shift placer's have a different level if you will of notional deployment some folks kind of group it together on the carriers that that is what all of the ships deutsch but six months re

from afghanistan, not supporting the people in iran when they rose up in 2009 in the green revolution, walking away from what solid support of democracy in the bush administration treating the war on terror like law enforcement officer but determining that we're going to bring terrorists on american soil. >> greta: it didn't happen. >> it didn't happen because people rose out. >> greta: how about this question. do we have more influence in the world now or do we have less influence? >> we had more influence, but the present world has a greater need of being reshaped because we operated within the structure. the president has to change the structure. if you look at the middle east we are used to thinking of states because that is what we have learned all our lives. in the middle east states created only around 1920. they were result of world war one and built by european countries and had their own rivalries. so countries like syria, iraq, jordan, those states had no existence before that and some more recent. so when the revolution occurs there what you see you may have she'ites and s
to draw down in afghanistan, and we have a continuing effort against al qaeda, and as we achieve some of those important goals, the united states is moving towards the end of the longest sustained armed conflict in the nation's history, and i would also like to take a moment to express my pride in the men and women in uniform who have fought throughout that period, putting their lives on line to protect this country. were it not for their sacrifices, were in not for their willingness to do that, we would not be able to accomplish what we have. thank god they are there. [applause] one thing i found out when i came from the cia to the defense department, i have a lot of great joy is. -- i have a hell of a lot of great choice. i have got great weapons, a -- i have a hell of a lot of great great ships, great plains, great toys. \ technologies, but none of that would be worth anything without the good men and women in uniform that serve this country and did it take their lives to protecting this country. that is the real strength of the united states of america. as we transition into this
soviets was we actually brought down the ministry of education to southwest afghanistan. it had been 35 years since that happened. it was too dangerous, way too dangerous. so currently i'll give you a snapshot. in 2007 there were no girls in school in southwest afghanistan. the taliban ran the medrossas, those are gone now. currently if you walked into southwest afghanistan you would see many marines but you would also see 25,000 kids in school. you would see close to 3,000 girls. there is a teacher's college that has been renovated in the big city and there are aspiring teachers studying at that college. there are women's centers established in two of those districts and there are afghan parents and educators involved in their local schools. and to just pull a thread on what many of our senior leadership has said throughout the couple of days, indeed the u.s. military is a global force for good and we will always seek opportunities to leave every place better than when we arrived. and i appreciate your time, appreciate your attention. thank you. .

two years in afghanistan, that my partner could have identity. it's a basic, basic need. what can we expect from the administration now and from hrc? >> yeah, well first of all, you telling your story just like that is something we didn't talk about. it's how we are winning these battles. it's a shame that it took us so long to learn that lesson that harvey milk taught us, by telling our story. people listen and people increasingly come about and they support us and the story that you just up and told, tivo like you telling that story across this country in states and here in this town were oftentimes in this town especially, the real-life human impact is often forgotten. because politics dominates. the discussion of politics and the ins and outs in the process dominate. that is why i was referencing what i did but is sort of the perfect follow up. to real-life committed couples, it's outrageous that in this country and perhaps in other countries you can imagine that, but in this country, we would treat our citizens in such an unequal way that impacts their lives. and we will keep fi

mentioned, literacy rate was 20 percent. that was country-wide. in southwest afghanistan that literacy rate was women was 8 percent. so you have to work very hard to get an 8 percent literacy rate for women, which means you actually have to stop and implement policies to make sure that women actually couldn't partake in any learning, any health systems, anything that would contribute to their growth. so girls in school, big focus area. we wanted to reverse the effects of the state of women and girls in afghanistan. so once the security foot hold was gained in southwest afghanistan by the marines in 2010 and 2011 and they continued to conduct operations as i'm speaking, we began to build capacity at every level to ensure the afghans are ultimately able to take the helm of their own destiny and they have the capacity to run this system. we instituted assessments for growth in schools, we create the thresholds for the complete turn over to the afghans and we ensured that there were actual funding lines present so the kabul ministry can make sure the money what was given to them by fore

three combat tours in iraq, a year in afghanistan. he and his family have given an awful lot to this country since 9/11. when the time came for us to be generous, we were not. i think it does say more about us than him. tavis: when you suggest that we care more about the sex lives of our leaders that their real lives of our soldiers, that is a pretty loaded statement. >> it worries me because it does speak to a moral recklessness. the casual arrogance with which we fought the wars in iraq and afghanistan the we did have 11 commanders in afghanistan in 11 years. if you ran a company like that, it would collapse. we just rotate commanders. these are things that affect the lives of soldiers. partly because of this country, we do not know much about military effectiveness any more. when you talk to combat soldiers, they do not care if their commander is gay, an alcoholic, even a racist. if people keep them alive. that is the only priority for soldiers. they really value a good leader. we are saying no, we do not value combat effectiveness. we value your personal morality. tavis:
-election of barack obama. those in afghanistan and pakistan may not have cheered his victory. obama will oversea the withdrawal of u.s. combat troops from afghanistan by the end of 2014. that's a number of challenges in the region. >> reporter: afghanistan and pakistan are affected by the fights. about 100,000 american troops were stationed in afghanistan. the number has fallen toess than 7000 d furtr reductions are planned. others worry the withdrawal could plunge the country back into unstable world. dialogue between the united states and taliban were suspended earlier this year. during the election campaign obama distanced himself from the issue to avoid being branded weak on terrorism. with the election behind him the president may become more flexible. here in pakistan relations with washington are expected to remain tense. the two sides differ over how to handle elements of al qaeda and other militants hiding in remote areas of pakistan near the afghanistan border. the obama administration has said they're not doing enough to comfort terrorists operationing on pakistani soil. the u.s. have
